She stepped out of her cage for just a few minutes after this,but as soon as I tried to take a pic she went back in. Still, little bits of progress is still progress!
Outstanding!

...as you said...progress is progress! :)

Today I found out that I can put my hand in her cage if I am holding a bite of fruit. She will snatch it and run to the far corner of her cage to eat it, but it is the closest she has let me get!

It's good she's letting you get closer, but I would try not to go into her cage too often. That is her safe zone, her domain. It'd be like guests walking through your bedroom. :confused:

Unless she invites you, that is. Our goffin, Luv Bug will sometimes stay on her perch & hold out her foot for us to reach in so she can step up. :rolleyes: Some days it's hard being a princess! :twirl:



Is she shredding in the 2nd pic or climbing? Our new girl loves shredding anything she can get her beak on!

my new position at work has kept me really busy, so i haven't been posting. chiquita continues to make slow but steady progress. some days are better than others. today she won't come near me, yesterday she was taking fruit out of my hand. it's one step forward and two steps back, but i have time and i am patient.

i will try to update more often.

Maybe your beautiful girl just needs time to take in all of the wonderful things she sees while she's out exploring. ;) She's lucky to have such a patient Momma. :yes1:
